Usher's Ex-Wife

Our Kids Are In Danger

I Want Custody

EXCLUSIVE

Usher's ex-wife has just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing later this week ... to wrestle child custody away from him, on grounds he's creating a dangerous environment ... TMZ has learned.

Tameka Raymond filed the docs in Fulton County, Georgia, claiming Usher is abdicating his parental responsibilities by letting other people care for their 2 kids -- people who she claims are not on the ball.

We know Tameka has specific beef with the Usher's aunt -- who was watching 5-year-old Usher Raymond V when his arm got stuck in the pool drain on Monday.  Tameka has complained about the aunt in the past -- alleging she once let a stalker in the house where Usher and the kids were staying.  Tameka also says the aunt is too physical in disciplining the kids.

Currently Usher has primary custody of both kids and Tameka has limited custodial rights.  She now seeks to reverse that.

You can't turn a hoe into a housewife. Also, singers don't make good parents, it's a fact!

When I saw the story about his son, I KNEW that was coming next from her. She lost once, so this is her chance to try again.

LMAO! I KNEW this was coming the second I read the first headline about the accident. Ummm, nevermind one of her kids (not Usher's) DIED in a boating accident. This has nothing to do w/the boys welfare and everything to do w/$$$$$$$$. Lesson learned here? Fellows, NEVER, EVER marry your wh0re!

I would file too. Their child almost died on his watch. He would have done the same thing had T messed up.

I don't see her having a case because of this. The children were supervised and a rescue was attempted so quickly that the child survived.

This woman is an opportunist. I knew from the moment this happened she was going to weasel her way for custody so she can get that child support.

It is unfortunate that Ushers Child is in the Hospital, Tameka instead of running to court run to the Hospital and be with your child that needs both of his parents.

Can't say I blame her for wanting custody of these boys. She lost a son last year due to some freak water accident. And with Usher's work schedule, she's right. He's not the one looking after those boys.

One of her kids died under her care. Accidents happen, that's all this was
